Help my ex wont give my son his meds on the weekends or vacation time he has him. so my son goes days without it and comes home more upset and violent with his sisters and me. I have try to talk to his father about making sure that he gets it but got told that he can give it to himself which the doctor says no because of where he is on the spectrum.

Hey guys has anyone with a toddler/child on the spectrum ever tried this ? Please comment your opinion thoughts or experience if used thanks
Has anyone ever heard of Angel Sense? If u have have u tried it? My son will be starting classes in September with BCIU/early intervention and im worried how he will do and how teachers will treat him.

I would love to talk to someone here who may be going through the same thing now or in the past with your child. Or if you don't mind sharing your story here, we would really appreciate it.
Sexual predators, bullies...How does everyone of you parents deal with teaching your special child/children (even when you feel they don't understand, they do) with keeping them safe from these monsters?

Sometimes it's hard to help those closest to us understand what life is really like with raising a child on the spectrum. What do you wish they could better understand about your child?
